We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website. If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date. If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!
So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …
John Knox Ranch HELP!!
On Saturday evening, May 23, 2015, the Central Texas/Hill County area around Wimberley and Blanco received a huge amount of rain, causing extensive and record-breaking flooding. John Knox Ranch was not exempt from the damage.
The Dining Hall is demolished to the point of being irreparable. There is significant water damage and debris all the way down to the chapel steps. The river was 1/2 way up the steps that go up to the cabins.
The Pool and Meeting House were also under water. The pool pump house (and its equipment) is a loss. The Meeting House had at least 7' of water in it. We are going to try to salvage it.
Their plan is to be able to open on June 10 when Camp is scheduled to start.
For a list of items they need and help/work crews and jobs please check out the following:
And of course $$ are also helpful.
The session decided last night to have a special basket passed around while the children are picking up AMEN donations specifically to help John Knox Ranch get back on it’s feet. We will be passing around this donation basket for the month of June. Think how many children are helped by being able to attend a Christian summer camp.

First Presby Farmer's Market stand is closed for the season but will be open as soon as there is fresh produce. All proceeds and unsold items will go to benefit AMEN. We also need people to "man" the booth each Sat. from 8-noon. There will be a sign up sheet in the fellowship hall for attending the booth. If you have produce to share you will be able to drop it off on Saturday mornings during farmer market times or call Bobbie for pickup. If you have suggestions for items to sale or just want to bake some cookies let Bobbie know.
